Opening as a vaudeville house in 1915, the Paramount Theatre soon changed with the times to become Austin’s grand movie palace. The Paramount served film lovers as a first-run theatre for many years before the decline of downtown Austin. Since then, it has presented numerous world premieres independently and continues to do so in partnership with the Austin Film Society and festivals like South by Southwest and the Austin Film Festival."
